The Garden of Quilts is an event like none other. In partnership with Riley Blake Designs, Thanksgiving Point is bringing to Utah an outdoor exhibition of well over a thousand quilts. Set within the award-winning, 55-acre Ashton Gardens, the exhibition will feature a juried collection of quilts from artists across the country, as well as rare access to view some stunning private collections--all on display for three days only.
In addition to the exquisite quilt exhibition will be a weekend full of additional opportunities for classes, vendors, shopping, trunk shows, charity service projects, special events—like afternoon tea, and off-site tours—that is sure to make this event one not to be missed.
The Garden of Quilts show is open to food, retail, and informational vendors on Friday September 13, and Saturday September 14, 2019, from 9:00am to 7:00pm. While we do our best to balance the number of vendors in any one category, there may be overlaps in some items and exclusivity is not promised nor to be expected. We are committed to keeping the selection of vendors interesting and fresh and are always interested in new vendors. Participation in any previous event or festival at Thanksgiving Point does not guarantee acceptance. All vendors are subject to planning committee approval. Odds of approval are based on number of applicants and relevancy of what the vendor participation adds to the event. Official acceptance status will be announced on July 26th, 2019 via email.
The Garden of Quilts is an outdoor event. The Show market will be located within the Aston Gardens. Due the logistics of the event, vendors will be shuttled in/out daily to their spot. We are anticipating hosting approximately 10,000 guests over the two days of the show though numbers cannot be guaranteed.
A standard retail vendor space is 10’ x 10’ space with a limited number of double spaces available at an additional cost. Retail spaces will be located within a larger tent near the creek and other festival tents. Thanksgiving Point will provide each retail vendor with (1) 8’x2.5’ banquet table, (1) table linen, and (2) chairs if requested.
Food vendors are provided a 10’x20’ close-walled tent. Weather can vary in extremes in our area and we often experience high winds, therefore vendors may not provide their own tent for safety reasons. We also have a space available for a limited number of food trucks.
